Updated on September 27.

It’s the news our community of fun jumpers has been waiting for… We are happy to confirm that our Desert Dropzone will kick off its 2021-22 season on Thursday, September 30. *cue cheers of happiness*
 
Our Margham dropzone will be open from Thursday to Monday, from 8 am, and will remain closed every Tuesday and Wednesday. The first planeload will takeoff around 9 am, and operations will continue until 5 pm, and/or the weather plays its part.
 
Ground School admissions for the new season will be open from September 1. Classes will be held every Wednesday during the season, except for the first session which will take place on Saturday, September 25. Those interested can write to school@skydivedubai.ae for information on the application process.
 
A Safety Day event will also take place in time for the start of the new season. Friday, September 24, is the date you need to circle in your diaries for that. Skydivers of all levels are encouraged to attend this event. 

Bookings for instructional jumps and for the following courses will open on September 15:

  • Canopy course
  • Water training course
  • ​Packing course

Before the new season starts, all fun jumpers are required to register with us and get the following information updated:

  • Watch the new briefing video for the dropzone, here.
  • Sign the new dropzone briefing document: link (bring the original copy to the dropzone or sign one on site)
  • Update your rig information: Do make sure your rig is in date. Please see the rigger if a check is needed. 
  • Update your license: Bring it on the visit to the drozpone so we can make a copy for our records.
  • Logbook: Bring it on the first visit to the dropzone so we can make a copy for our records.
  • ID copy: A photo ID is needed to complete the check-in process, and we will make a copy for our records.

The office at the dropzone will be open from September 25 to 29, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, should you like to update your information or purchase jump tickets.

So, spread the news. We’re almost there…
